She Cracked the Code
Student: Dear James, so Isvara gave me a knock on the door with the health issue I told you about, and I realized that I always need to watch my thinking no matter how convinced I am that I am awareness. The jiva mind comes up with so many absolutes which act as a smoke screen. I am learning to listen. ☺
It occurred to me more clearly this past week that there really is nothing wrong with samsara. It is not an illusion to transcend but an eternal manifestation that hitches a ride on awareness. It never goes away, so why try to leave it? It would be like trying to be alive without breathing. It is a given even though it is an illusion. I could be way off with these thoughts but the way that I see it now brings a lot of peace. There is no struggle even if I am struggling. This core understanding is now in the driver’s seat and I can relinquish control. I can even enjoy what samsara is showing me instead of viewing it as “the enemy” to my spiritual journey. This view of samsara in a way has been the obstruction. I am not trying to get out of or beyond samsara, just clearly being at peace with the game.
~ Love to you and Sundri… XXOO
James: Ah, yes, that pesky jiva mind. Always listen to it and always question it. You are 100% right: there is nothing wrong with samsara, because there is no actual samsara – only luminous, ever-free you. Actually, you are way on with these thoughts and you can profitably leave the driving to Isvara. Time to enjoy unreservedly. You are alive without breathing. I’m so happy you have cracked the code!
~ Much love, James
